    Hello,

    A few people have asked about RIR chickens so I thought I would add a video of mine. Production Run chickens, no show chickens here, about 13 weeks old now. This is not a professional video, just shot as I sat around watching the chickens. If you like these videos, you know you've got the fever! I hope you can see a little of their behavior. If you can't see the videos, post and I will adjust.

    Thanks

    Neat. Chickens are cool.

    I thought it was interesting that when you stick your big old ham fist down in front of the cockerels beak and he gave you a nip - that some might call that "aggressive."

    Silly people!

    Thanks for the vids.

    Dave,

    What I find amazing is how people will come to my house and reach down to pet the rooster like he was some Golden Retriever puppy. I put my hand down to show uneducated future chicken owners what might happen. The rooster will also peck when you are changing the water or feed. I actually prefer his behavior to the hens who just scoot to the other side of the coop when I enter. I think he is a great bird. Gotta love chickens!

    Great videos...enjoyed watching your chickens. I have a mix and one of my girls thinks my hubby is a bed [​IMG] lol She jumps up on his lap and just cuddles up and sleeps. I DID raise mine to be lap chickens...or at least I must have. Didn't mean to [​IMG] but it happened. I just couldn't seem to put them down. Now my EE has adopted my hubby [​IMG]
